, a very different governing policy and a different philosophy. joe is very good on the attack, and trying to confuse the issues so that the person leaves the debate confused about who stands for what. my job is to make sure they are not confused about what we stand for and what they stand for. >> you have said olsen, a supreme court appellate lawyer, who won bush versus courgore, as -in. standin >> he is one of the best litigators in americate. he has studied joe biden's tapes and his style. host: he's been preparing for the debate with ted. in kentucky and that is the second of four debates. the first one in denver this wednesday between the president and mitt romney. fort meade is on a line for democrats, john, good morning. caller: good morning. thanks for taking my call. i have been a registered democrat all my life. my dad was a union electrician growing up in west virginia, the coal mining area. everybody is a democrat there. especially the last four years my opinion, i feel the administration is very weak. when the chinese are coming over here and winning contracts with stimulus mo
in the transition to democracy, i am convinced that ultimately government of the people, by the people, and for the people is more likely to bring about prosperity and individual opportunity to serve as a basis for peace in our world. host: in "the herald," they put it this way -- host: dallas, texas. bob, independent line. caller: i am more of a liberal, but i applied my beliefs liberally to all issues. when the iranian president speaks about eliminating or wiping israel off the map, we must remember that one country was eliminated, wiped out, and that was palestine. no one speaks to that. he does not speak about annihilating. and i hate to defend him. he is all the things i find abhorrent as a liberal, but this year, we try to demonize this person when the issue is israel, a theocracy in the middle east that eliminated another country off the map, palestine. it is only for people within the same religion. it is ridiculous. and his support comes from, you know, the same people who support that right here in america. thank you. host: carol, california. what is the name of your town? go
've shared what we've learned with governments and across the industry so we can all produce energy more safely. i want you to know, there's another commitment bp takes just as seriously: our commitment to america. bp supports nearly two-hundred-fifty thousand jobs in communities across the country. we hired three thousand people just last year. bp invests more in america than in any other country. in fact, over the last five years, no other energy company has invested more in the us than bp. we're working to fuel america for generations to come. today, our commitment to the gulf, and to america, has never been stronger. >>> developing right now, republican vice presidential candidate paul ryan is taking new aim at president obama's handling of the war in afghanistan. in fact, ryan just spoke a couple hours ago to laura engram on her radio show. >>> those are new comments from congressman ryan a couple house ago. in a new interview the u.s. commander in afghanistan says he's outraged by the recent surge and insider attacks. >> i'm mad as hell about them to be honest with you. we're going
.u. mark, thanks very much. spain is among europe's largest economies, but the government has borrowed so much money that it's been forced into huge spending cuts and layoffs to try to repay what it owes. one of the people working to rescue europe is christine lagarde. she's the head of the international monetary fund and one of the most powerful people in the world in finance. the i.m.f. is essentially a massive bank that helps countries manage debt and international trade. at her headquarters in washington, we asked lagarde about the spaniards like the ones you just met. >> i feel very bad and very sorry for the people, because i know how hard it is and i know how difficult it is for people who lose their job, for families who find it difficult to make ends meet. but equally i know that it's necessary. and it's a process through which countries have to go in order to restore their situation and be able to grow again and create jobs again. >> pelley: how long do you imagine the troubles in europe will go on? >> it has been going on for a long time. a lot has been done. you know, the euro

. it's a little more complicated than that. the federal government's was offering massachusetts $385 million, i believe, and that covered about half of the cost of providing care to uninsured people. governor romney had said at i have an opportunity to save the state a lot of money, because if we did not take the federal money, it would have gone away, we would not have access to it anymore. with health care reform, we are able to accept this large sum of money and free some of the cost of providing care for people who don't have health insurance. host: we're learning about the health care law that governor romney signed into law in massachusetts with the reports from the boston herald christine mcconvillechristine. she's been with the herald five years. she also reported for the boston globe before that. we have a phone line set up especially for massachusetts residents. and republicans and democrats can call us as well as independent scholars. -- callers. let's look at some details of how the health care law has played out. 98% of adults are now covered. nearly 100% of children are
solutions, and people lost confidence that the government knew what it was doing. they let one fail, they'd bail out another one, they'd let another one fail, back and forth. what's the policy? and so i think the crisis was terribly mishandled by secretary paulson is and the others involved in it. cheryl: i will say oneover the things, william, that he did do and, frankly, i've been on the air saying i thought it was the right move, letting lehman go, almost making that example of lehman brothers, putting the banks on notice, we're not going to be downtown at the new york fed negotiating last minute deals on sunday nights to save your behinds, basically. that was a pretty bold move by paulson. you wouldn't have done that same move that he made five years ago in. >> no, i think that when you're, when you have a crisis, the first obligation the government has is to calm the crisis, do whatever it takes to calm the crisis. and that's what we did in the 1980s. i would tell you, cheryl, the 1980s was far more threatening to the financial system and the economy than this episode in 2008. we act
si germany and the japanese because the attack on liberty today is from our own government. that's one choice. or, more serious than the threat we face from the soviet union during the cold war. or all of the above. or serious but not as serious as the threats to liberty listed above. for all the communist pollsters, that's one of the choices. you were asked if you will pledge right now on this survey to vote on november 6th if you are physically able to do so. you have to fill in the bubble saying you're swearing to do it and you have to sign your name there to verify your pledge. and also please send ralph reed some money. will you send your best emergency freedom saving donation right now? ralph reed is going to spend $12 million this election cycle. that's a lot of postage for hilarious polls. i'm sure ralph reed himself is doing well in terms of the cut he's taking for this surveying that he's doing, but $12 million even minus the considerable fee, that's got to be a lot of money. that's a lot of comparing president obama to hitler and please sign here if you understand it.
. >> 47% of the people who vote for the president no matter what. who are dependent upon government, who believe they are victims, who believe the government has the responsibility to care for them, who believe they are entitled to health care, food, housing, you name it. and they will vote for this president no matter what. and so my job is not to worry about those. i'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility. >> top of the hour a live look at the white house on a rainy friday morning in washington. welcome back to "morning joe." we're here in washington. sam is still with us along with mark halperin up in new york and joining the table here in d.c. we've got a great group. former -- my professor? >> your professor. >> am i a good student professor gingrich? >> much better than me. you were my favorite student. >> wow. >> former white house secretary under president clinton and contributing editor to "vanity fair" dee dee myers is with us as well. okay. >> we just have a fascinating conversation. the contents of which we won't say completely on the air. >> oh. >> b
, there are a lot of small-government conservatives that don't think we should be spending over $2 billion a week in afghanistan, who don't think the president should have tripled down the number of troops when he had a chance to pull back and bring those troops home. a lot of conservatives believe that. i think this is a missed opportunity. >> well, and foreign policy clearly is going to be an area where mitt romney will want to make a turn in terms of the narrative of the campaign. one other issue that is now coming into the forefront is the benghazi attack and news over the weekend that the four americans including the u.s. ambassador there who were killed according to politico, romney advisers are now split over how broadly they should hit the president over his handling of that attack. and why it took so long to acknowledge that it was an act of terrorism. while some romney advisers argue they should keep their focus on the economy, politico says plans are in the works for mitt romney to deliver a major foreign policy speech shortly after wednesday's debate. what do you think of that? you th

[ male announcer ] good choice business pro. good choice. go national. go like a pro. >> announceryou never know when, but thieves can steal your identity and turn your life upside down. >> hi. >> hi. you know, i can save you 15% today if you open up a charge card account with us. >> you just read my mind. >> announcer: just one little piece of information and
meant governing right quick. but you know i go back to something i say every time, that people have to remember that, you know, thanks to two books, one by robert draper the other by michael grinwald we know between the time obama was elected president and the time he was inaugurated, republicans met at least twice, the leadership met at least twice to hatch a plan to just, you know, obstruct the incoming president no matter what. even though the economy was falling off the cliff it was all about obstruct him in 2009, to take back the house or both chambers in 2010 and win the white house in 2012. no matter what they didn't want president obama to succeed. they saw it as a success for him rather than a success for the country. >> i questiguess the question t have or quotes that will haunt him, the closing of guantanamo, comprehensive immigration reform. the problem with all that is the answer is republican stood in the way, didn't want to play ball, which you could say a fair assessment but does it sound after you have the same answer to each question, does it sound whiney? >> i thi

was going on about the 47% who are dependent on the government is hard to swallow. i think i'm part of the 47% he's lking about. but i don't want to be dependent on the government." that's a pretty good indation of where that commenhas taken this campaign. e a ais if ry'mmen in television ads in ohio. it appears to be taking a toll on romney's number. the gallup tracking poll shod romney making up ground with president obama after the democratic national convention. a ek after the fund-raising deo was released by mother jones, obama has opened up a six-point lead. president obama was also in ohio today, delivering a knockout punch. and, oh, yes, he reminded ohio voters where mitt romney was when the state needed him at a ital te. >>n mypponent sa we should just let detroit go bankrupt, that would have meant walking away from an industry that supports one in eight ohio jobs. it supports busisses in 82 of 88 ohio counties so when he said that, i said, no, i'm going to bet on america. i'm betting on american workers. >>hio's 7.2% unemployment rate is directly linked to the auto scue, t
businesses, job creators and do more to have a government-centered economy. which is what we've had for the past four years and we're still at 8.1 unemployment with 23 million americans looking for jobs. i think that president obama can't change the facts on wednesday night. and i think the contrast will be very clear. so i look forward to seeing that. >> let's talk about the figure, 8.1% unemployment that could be a conservative estimate. when you take into the fact the folks who have just stopped looking. that's been the economic reality in this country for several months now. but governor romney has not been able to move the needle. in fact in many of the battleground states, the needle has started to move in the opposite direction for him. despite these numbers that you just pointed out. why is that? why is the message not resonated yet with just 37 days left? >> you know, i think like i've mentioned earlier. the polls will tighten. you're going to see independents are still very interested, following this very closely. independents are very pro romney and i think you're going t
that threatened to shut down the federal government, you voted to continue paying members of congress including yourself in the event of a shut down. at the same time, you voted against a bill that would have ensured that members of the armed services continued to get paid. my question is this, eric. how could you in good conscious vote to continue your own pay but at the same time vote to stop paying our servicemen and women that you voted to send into combat in afghanistan? >> cantor never directly answered the question. do you think we're doing enough for our service members, what about it? >> by not answering it, he answered it. he's never done enough for our service people. he voted against a suicide prevention program for veterans returning from iraq and afghanistan. for every combat loss we have every day, we have 18 people who came back from afghanistan and iraq that commit suicide. the veterans are forgotten in this political gamut that he has in d.c. he's intent to make sure the wealthiest get the tax cuts. he forgets that the people we send over to fight the war, they deserve the bes
